Air Jordan Retro II (White/Metallic Silver)

Rarely do we ever see the Air Jordan 2 whether it is releasing or just surfacing on the web. Specifically, it released last year in its respective Countdown Pack and we saw PEs from players such as Ray Allen, Josh Howard and Gerald Wallace in our Kicks On Court. However, we have now received word that an Air Jordan 2 Retro is set to release in 2010.

Birdman (Feat. Drake & Lil Wayne) - Money To Blow

"The Moment the Game Changed"

To commemorate “The Moment The Game Changed,” Mitchell & Ness re-released Michael Jordan’s rookie jersey. The jersey itself is tailored to the exact specifications of the one that Jordan wore in 1984-85. These jerseys will release exactly 25-years after MJ graced the NBA hardwood (October 26, 1984). The Mitchell & Ness store in Philly, NBA Store in NYC, The Chicago Bulls team store, and will be the only places to buy the jerseys, which retail for $375.

Mitchell & Ness delivered one of these jerseys to me last week. Upon removing the dust cover and opening the meticulously designed Mitchell & Ness box, I found one of the greatest gifts/perks that I have ever received. Mitchell & Ness produced 1,264 jerseys to reflect the number of games Jordan played as a pro. This number includes the regular season, All-Star, and playoffs. Each jersey is stitched with a number from 1-1264, to represent a specific game. An elegant plaque fastened inside the commemorative box is etched with the specific details of the date and game. For example, I received game number 879 of 1264. My plaque reads, “Your jersey represents game #879 in the career of Michael Jordan. Game #879 was held March 18, 1996 as the Chicago Bulls defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 98-94. Michael Jordan’s stat line that day included 38 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 assists.” I was hoping to get the game where MJ dropped 55 on the Knicks right after his first comeback… so I could burn it! Oh well

Air Jordan 1 Phat High Black-Varsity Red/Varsity Maize

2009 has seen a plethora of Air Jordan retro releases, but perhaps no single Jordan has been in more production/demand than the Air Jordan 1. Pictured here is a high-top Air Jordan 1 Retro Phat Premier with a very stylish execution. The shoe’s upper consists of a black leather base and sits atop a completely white midsole. Varsity red accents exist on the top of the tongue, shoe laces, patented Nike swoosh, and the entire outsole. For added flavor, varsity maize/yellow stitching runs through the entire shoe as well- starting at the tongue and moving then to the heel and through both the mid-panel and toe box. Sure to attract many Jordan fans, this pair of AJ I’s is available EARLY from trusted retailer UptempoAir at retail price and in BOTH adult and kid sizes. Head over to UTA’s online shop ASAP, or it might be too late to be one of the few to rock these before others can even purchase them.
